There’s just over one week to go until Brooke Blurton makes her debut as The Bachelorette 2021.
And despite the fact only a couple of contestants have been announced so far, fans already reckon Jamie-Lee Dayz may be the winner.
In the latest promo, Jamie-Lee, who first met Brooke filming The Honey Badger’s season of The Bachelor in 2018 when she joined the show as an intruder, revealed that she’s had feelings for her ever since then. Which is a looong time.
Here’s what Jamie-Lee said in the promo:
‘Brooke and I spent a lot of time together in the house. We just clicked. But I think it was as more than friends. For three years, I have wondered if it was just one sided. Now I have a second chance with Brooke. I feel like I’m really putting myself out there, maybe she just sees me as a friend? I don’t know how she’s going to react.’
Interestingly, Brooke and Jamie-Lee were first romantically linked to each other as Nick’s season of The Bachelor aired in 2018.
A magazine media report even claimed that the pair briefly dated at one point.
However, Jamie-Lee denied this at the time.
“I actually think it’s a really disappointing rumour to hear,” she told Mamamia back then.
“Just because there are two, I’m going to use the term bisexual, just because there are two bisexual girls in one room doesn’t mean that they’re automatically dating. It’s a shame to see that as a society that’s the outcome we come to, just because there’s two people who have similarities. It kind of sucks.
“It’s definitely not true. I have a lot of love for Brooke and she’s a such a legend but we’re definitely just friends.”
Now that she’s admitted to having feelings for Brooke for years, could there be more to their story than previously thought?
